More Air Jordan 6 Cigar love today, as we get a detailed look at an early run of the upcoming, breathtaking (see what I did there?) colorway.
A celebratory edition, the “Cigar” is inspired by MJ’s penchant for lighting up a victory stogie after sinking another Western Conference squad in the NBA Finals. As such, the colorway’s aesthetics are inspired by the actual appearance of a cigar: the weathered brown leather upper reminisicent of the dried tobacco leaf; gold in the tongue evoking images of the foil ring; two-tone red and translucent blue on the outsole mimicking ashy embers (or Bulls coloring, you like).
And that championship-resembling ring, emblazoned with 1991, the year of MJ’s first championship? Well that’s just showing off. Wouldn’t you?
